I present to you one of Avalonias light siege weapons. Pulled by one horse this device makes a deadly and quick part of Avalonias Siege Forces. This fits perfect with my light cavalry, one of them is in the background.

That's really nice! :thumbup:

Is that an original lego string?  :laugh: They are much better than the ones I find in regular stores...

Not so sure about that red piece, though... Was it the only one availabe? A black one would look better, IMHO...

Nice ballista, I like the sturdy look combined with the tension of the string.

Maybe you could cut back the excess string. A real thick rope would not defy gravity like this.

I could see this becoming a battle pack. Try and get noticed by Lego on this website http://lego.cuusoo.com/

Nice work, de Gothia. :classic: Light artillery is always good to have. Between your ballistas and my trebuchets, Avalonia will be well-prepared to assault enemy fortifications. :sweet:

Nice and simple, perhaps try to add something to indicate a crank on the end.

Simple but beautiful design.  I like that it appears to be quite mobile AND deadly.  We certianly need a few of these in case the drow or Nocturnians get bold.

Thanks guys!

The red horse thing is the only colour I have...

The excess strings have been cut off :blush:

I´ve been thinking of adding a crank, but can´t figure out how...
